Case study: Favell Day Services
About the Group:
Favell Day Services provide day care and support for adults with physical disabilities. This consists of social interaction, leisure and recreational activities, all to improve life experience and social isolation.
During the winter months, Favell Day services required funding to purchase additional warm clothing and equipment to support their members to stay warm and health. Items required included heated over blankets, warm pyjamas, thermals. Power banks and waterproofs.
What was achieved through the grant:
The grant helped increase the health and well-being of Favell Say Services members through reducing the impact the cold can have on morale and leading to further health problems. As well as improved health and well-being, there was a reduction of stress, anxiety and depression and members were even able to enjoy the winter outside by having the appropriate clothing leading to increased physical activity and mental health.
